FEARS OF FOUNDERING.: A LAIiK SUPKRIOK PROPELLER BEIiIEVED TO HE LOST. ff P n or Fifteen Passengers and Her rtew on Her When She Left Port Arthur - Tugs Report Wreckage Strewn Along the Water for Miles. sault Stic. Marik, Mich., Oct. 24. , t ' is believed that the Canadian propeller Dominion has foundered in Lake Su perior. She left Port Arthur on the north ,bore last Monday and was out in the norm that sent the barge Eureka to the boitom. Summers that left Port Arthur twenty-four hours ahead of her passed here forty-eight hours ago. STREWN WITH WRECKAGE. The belief that she is lost is strengthen ed by a report brought here to-night ny the , ue cbas. West, which arrived from Bat oheewanaung bay, uortheast of White Pish Point on the Canadian shore. Capt. Coates, master of the tug, reports (hiding n large amount of wreckage irom some propeller adrift between the bay and Parisienne Island. On the island was nart of the promenade deck with the ‘iirpet attached. He brought down live Btaie-ioom doors and a cook’s blouse with the name “Glasgow” stamped on it. SPREAD OVER SEVERAL MILES. The wreckage extends along the shore (or several miles. No bodies were dis covered uor could there be found any trace ol the crew and passengers at any of the fishing stations. The Dominion is a passenger steamer and it is reported that she had between ten and fifteen passengers when she left Port Arthur. Tugs have to the vicinity of the wreek to search for survivors'. The shore is al most barren o! habitations, but there are fishermen’s shanties at various points, and there is some ground tor hope that at least part of the passengers and crew have escaped. NOT THE DOMINION. Sault Stk. Marie, Oct. 24, 11 P. M. — The over due propeller Dominion passed down this evening. The wreckage float ing about near Wbite Fish Point is prob ably that of the barge Eureka. A FIRE ON THE LAKE.

Later in the day a tug went up from thiscitv and succeeded in extin guishing the flames. Both vessel and c argo are a total loss. The Rudolph was veined at s22,Odd. She was loaded with lumber valued at several thousand dol lars. FUMMKItYILLE’S PHENOMENA. Hie Water in Some Wells Forced Upward Thirty-funr Feet. Charleston, s.c., Oct. 24.—There has been no seismic disturbance here since Friday night. There was one shock at Summervslle to-day at 11 tiOo’clock. It was veareely perceptible but for the fact that it was preceded by detonations. One seri ous result ot tbe shocks at Summerville Friday afternoon is a general rise of water in the wells. One case at the Summerville depot sheas that the water rose thirty four leet. The general average was from six to eight ieet. In one instance the water rose fifteen feet in a well, remained nt that height several hours aud then fell live leet. Observations also show that water was exuded almost invariably frciii the fissures uud govsers made on the night of Aug. 31. AN extinct crater active. Panama, Oct. 24.—The fraza volcano, near Cartago, in Costa Rica, hns long been considered extinct. Recently, how ever, smoke has been noticed floating over the old crater.

Refusal of the People of the Time to Relieve in Him—Modern Skeptics—His 1! iinib'e Orig.u Despised by the Proud It I ue Bloods of the Day. Brooklyn, N.Y.. Get.24—The throngs in and around the Brooklyn Tabernacle on Sabbath mornings and evenings are larger than at any time during tho seven teen years of Dr. Talmage’e pastorate. This morning the opening by mu was that beginning: “Oh, could I speak the matchless worth. Oh, could I sound the glories forth That in my Saviour shine!” The text was John xvii., 4: “I have finished the work which Thou gavest me to do.” The Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage. 1). D., said: There is a profound satisfaction in the completion of anything we have un dertaken. e lift the capstone with ex ultation, while, on the otber hand, there is nothing more disappointing tnan, after having toiled in a certain direction, to find that our time is wasted and our in vestment profitless. Christ came to throw up a highway on which the whole world might, if it chose, mount into Heav en. He did it. The loul-mouthed orew who attempted to tread on him could not extinguish tbe sublime satisfaction which he expressed when he said: “I have fin ished the work which Thou gave* me to do.” Alexander the Great was wounded, and the doctors could not medioate his wounds, and he seemed to be dying, and m bis dream tbe sick man saw a plant with a peculiar flower, and be dreamed that that plant was put upon his wound, and that immediately it was cured. And Alexander, waking from his dream, told this to the physician, and the phvslclau wandered out until lie found just the kind of plant which tbe sick man bad de scribed, brought it to him aud the wound was healed. Well, tbe human race had been hurt with Ihe ghastliest of all wounds—that of sin. It was the business of Christ to bring a balm for that wound—the balm of divine restoration. In carrying this business to a successful issue the diffi culties were stupendous. In many oi our plans we have our friends to help us; sometoaraw a sketch of the plan, others to help us in the exe cution. But Christ fought every inch ol his way against bitter hostility and amid circumstances all calculated to depress and defeat. In the first place, Hie worldly occupa tion was rst Him. 1 And that He earned ills ikood by the carpenter’s trade—an occupation always to be highly regarded and respected. But you know, ;ts well as I do, tdat in order to succeed in any employment one must give his en tire time to it, and 1 have to declare that tbe fatigues of carpentry were unfavor able to tbe execution ol a mission whiob required all mental and pnysical facul ties. Through high, bard, dry, husky, insensate Judaism to hew a way tor anew and glorious dispen sation was a stupendous undertaking ihat was enough to demand all the con centrated energies even ot Christ. We have a great many romantic stories about what men with physical toil have accom rilished iu intellectual departments; but you know thataiier a man has beeu toil ing all day with adze, and saw, and ham mer, plane and ax, about all be can do is to rest. A weary body is an unfavorable adjunct to a toiling mind. You whose upbuilding of a kingdom, or the procla mation of anew code of morals, or the starting ot a revolution which should up turn ail nations, could get some idea of ihe incoherence ot Christ’s worldly occu pation with His heavenly mission. in His lather’s shop no more inter course was necessary than is ordi narily necessary in bargaining with men Unat have work to do; yet Christ, with hands hard from touch of tools of trade, was called forth to become a public speaker, to preach in tbe face of mobs, while some wept, and some shook their tisis, and some gnashed upon Hun with their teeth, and many wanted Him out of trie way. To address orderly and respectful as semblages is not so easy as it may seem, but it requires more energy, and more foice, and more concentration to address an exasperated mob. The villagers of Nazareth beard tbe pounding of His ham mer, but all tbe wide reaches of eternity were to bear tfie stroke of His spiritual upbuilding. 8o also His habits of dress and of diet were against Him. Tbe mighty men of Christ’s time did not appear in apparel without trinkets and adornments. None of the Caisars would have appeared in citizen’s apparel. Yet hero was a man —here was a pretended King—who al ways wore the same coat, indeed, it was far from shabby, for alter be had worn it a long wnile the gamblers thought it worth raffling about; but still it was far from being an imperial robe, it was a coat that any ordinary man might have worn on an ordinary occasion. Neither was there any pretension in His diet. No cup-bearer with golden chalice brought Hun wine to drink. Go i tie seashore he ate llsli, first having broiled it Himself. No one fetched Him w ater to drink, but bending over tbe well in hamaria lie begged a drink. He sat at only one banquet, aud that not at all sumptuous, ior, to relieve ihe awkward ness ol the host, one of tbe guests had to p. i pure wine fur me company. (hiier kings ride in a chariot. lie walked. Other kings, as tbev advance, have heralds ahead, and applauding sub jects behind. Christ’s retinue was made up of sunburned ilsi srmen. Other kings sleep under einbronii red canopy; this one on a sneiterless bill. Ruling but once, as far as 1 now remember, on a colt, aud that borrowed. Again, ills poverty was against Him. It requires money to build great enter prises. Men ot means are afraid of a pen niless projector, lest a loan be demanded, it requires money to print books, to build lustiiutious, to pay instructors. No wonder the wise men of Christ’s time laughed at this penniless Christ. “Why,” they said, “who is to pay for this new re ligton? Who is to charter tbe ships to carry the missionaries? YVdo Is to (ay the salaries of the leaouers t Shall wealthy Judaism be discomfited by a peumicas Christ?” The consequence was that most of tbe people that lollowed Christ bad nothing to loso. Wealiny Josepn of Arimaihen buried Christ, but be risked no social position in doing that. It is always safe in bury a dead man. Zaccceus risked no wealth or social position in lollowiug Curist. but took a position iu a tree to look down a* lie passed. Nlcodemus, wealthy Nicodeinus. risked nothing Of social position in lollowiug Christ, lor he tkuikrd by nigut to hud liitn. All this was against i;hrlst. N> the I act that He was not gularly graduated was Bgaiust Him. If u man come* with the diplomas of colleges and schools and theological seminaries, and he has been through foreign travel, the world is dis posed to listen. There was a man who had graduated at no college, had not in any academy by ordinary means learned the alphabet of ihe language tie spoke, and vet he proposed to talk, to instruct In subjects which bad confounded the mightiest intellects. John says: “The Jews marvelled, saying, how hsth this man letters, having never learned?” We in our day have found out that a man without a diploma may know as much as a man with one, nnd that a col lege cannot transform a sluggard into a philosopher, or a theological seminary teach a fool to preach. An empty head alter tbe laying on ot hands ol the pres bytery la empty still. But it shocked all existing prejudices in those olden times ior a niHn with no souolaslic pretension and no graduation from a learned institu tion to set Himself up for a teacher. It was all against Him. So also the brevity of His life was against Him. Ue had not come to what we oall midlife. But very few men do anything betore thirty-three yearsof ag, and yet that was tbe point at which Christ’s lift terminated. The first fifteen you take in nursery and school. Then it will take you at least six years to get into your occupation or profession. That will bring you to twenty-one years. Then it will take you ten years at least to get established in your liie work, correcting tne mistakes you have made. It any man, at twenty-three years of age. gets fully established iu his life work, he is the exception. Yet that Is the point at -whioh Christ's life terminated. Men in military life have done their most wonderful deeds before S3 years of age. There may be exceptions to it, but the most wonderful exploits in military prowess have occurred before 33 years of age. But as a legislator—no man be comes eminent as a legislator until he bns had long years of experience. And vet the gray-bearded scribes wore expeoted to bow down iu silence before this young legislator, who arraigned sanhedrims and accused governments. Aristotle was old; Lycurgus was old; Seneca was old. The great legislator** ot the world have been old. Christ was young. All this was against Him. If a a child, 12 years ol age, should get up iu your presence to disouss great questions of metaphysics, or ethics, or politics, or government, you would not be more con temptuous than tnese gray-bearded scribes in the presence of this young Christ. l’opular opinion declared in those days: “Blessed is the merchant who has aoastle down on the banks of Lake Tiberias.” This young man said: “Blessed are the poor.” Popular opinion said in those days: “Blessed are those who live amid statuary, and fountains, aud gardens,and congratulations, and all kinds of fes tivity.” This young man responded: ••Blessed Hie they that mourn.” Punlio opinion in those days said: “Blessed is the Roman eugie, tbe flap of whose wing startles i.aliens, and the plunge ol whose iron beak inflicts cruelty upon its ene mies.” This young man responded: "Blessed a:e the merciful.” l’opular opinion said: “An eye tor an eye, a tooth for a tooth.” In other words, if a rnau knocks your eye out, knock his out. it a man breaks your tooth, break his. Retort for retort; sarcasm 'js sarcasm; irony for irony; persecution for persecution; wound lor wound. Chrlstsaid: “Pray lor them that despitefully use you.” They looked at his eve, it was like any other man’s eye, except, perhaps, more speaking. They felt his band, made of bones and muscles, nerves and flesh, just like any otber hand. Yet what bold treat ment of subjects, what supernatural de mands, what strange doctrine! They felt the solid earih under them, and yet Christ said; “I bear up the pillars of this world.” They looked at the moon, He said: “I will turn it into blood.” They looked at the sea, He said: “1 will hush It.” They looked at the stars, He said: “I will shako them down like untimely figs.” Did ever one so young say things so bold? It was all against Him. Alter the battle of Antietam, when a general rode along the lines, although tho soldiers wore lying down exhausted, thev rose with great enthusiasm and buzzacci. As Napoleon returned from his captivity, nis first step ou tne wharf shook ali the kingdoms, and 250,000 men flocked to his standard. It took 3,000 troops to watch him in his exile. 8o there have been men ot wonderful magnotism of person. But hear me while 1 tell you of a poor youug man who came up from Nazareth to pro duce a thrill which has never been excited by any other. Na poleon had around him the memories of Marengo and and Jena, but here was a man who had fought no battles, who wore no epaulettes, who brandished no sword. He had, probably, never seen a prince or shaken hands with a nobleman. The only extraordinary person we know of as being in his com pany was bis own mother, and she was so poor that in the most delicate ami solemn hour that ever comes to a woman's soul sue was obliged to lie down, camel drivers grooming tfie beasts of burden. 1 imagine Cfirist one day standing in tbe streets of Jerusalem. A man de scended from high lineage is standing be side him and eays: “My father was a merchant prince; be had a castle on tho beach m (-alllee. Who was your father?” Christ answers: “Joseph, the carpenter.” A man from Athens is standing there un rolling his parchment of graduation, and bays to Cfirist: “Where did you goto school?” Cbristanswers: “Inevergrad uated.” Aha! the idea ol such tin un heralded y oung man attempting to com mand the attention of the world ! As well some little fishing village on Long Island shore attempt to arraign New York. YeL no sooner does He set His loot in tbe towns or cities of Judea than everything is in commotion. The people go out on a picnic, tuking only iooa enough for a day. yet are so fascinated with Christ that, at the risk of starving, they follow Him out into the wilderness. A nobleman fails down fiat belore llim and says: “My daughter is dead.” A beggar tries to rub tho dim ness irom bis eyes,and says: “Lord, that my eyes may be opened.” A poor, sick, panting woman presses through the crowd and says: “1 must tqgich the bem of His garment.” Children, who love their mother better than any one else, struggle to get into His arms, and to kiss His cheek, and to run their fingers through His hair, and for all Hmeputting Jesus so in love with the little ones that there is hardly a nursery in Christendom from which He does not take one,saying: “I must have them; 1 will fill Leuven with these, for every cedar that 1 plant in Heaven 1 will have fifty white lilies. In tue hour when 1 was a poor man in Judea they were not ashamed of me, and now that I have como to a throne 1 do not despise them. Hold it not back, ob weeping mother! Lay it on my wai m heart. Of such Is the king dim of Heaven.” Again, 1 remark, there was no organi zation in His behalf,and that was against Him. When men propose any gieat work they hand together; they write loners of agreement; they inks oaths of fealty; and the more comnlete tbe organization tho more complete the success. Here was One who went forth without any organi zation and alone. If men had a mind to join in His company, all right; if they had a mind not to join in His company, all well. If they came they were greeted with no loud salutation; if they went away they were sent with no bitter anathema. Peter departed, and Curist turned and looked at him. That was all! All this was Hen lust llim. Did any oue ever undertake such an enterprise amidst such infinite embarrassments and by such modes? Anil yet lam here to eay it ended in a complete triumph. Notwith standing His wordly occupation, His poverty, Ills plain face, Ills unpretending garb, the fact that be was sohoolless, the lact that he had a brief life, tbe fact that be was not acoompunled by any visioie organization—notwithstanding all that, in an exhilaration whioh shall be pro longed in everlasting chorals: “l have finished tho work Thou gavest mo to do.” See Him victorious over the forces ol nature. Tho sea is a crystal sepulchre, it swallowed the Central America, the President and the Spanish Armada as easily bh any fly that ever floated on it. Tbe inland lakes are fully as terrible in their wrath. Recent travelers tell us that Galilee, when aroused in a storm, is over whelming; and yet that sea erouolied in His presence an.l licked His feet. He knew all the waves and the wind. When He beckoned they came. When He frowned they fled. The heel of His fooi made no ludentaiiou oil the solidifloal water. Medical science has wrought great ohauges iu rheuinaticGimbs and diseased blood, hut. when the muscles are entirely withered no human powor can restore them, and when a limb is once dead it is dead. Hut here is a paralytic —his hand lifeless. Christ says to him: “Btreich lorth thy band,” and he stretches it forth. In the eve infirmary how many diseases of thst delicate organ have been cured. Hut Jesus says to one blind: “Be open,” and the light of Heaven rushes through gates that have never before been oponed. The frost or an ax may kill a trefe, but Jesus smites one dead with a word. Chem istry can do many wonderful tilings, but what chemist, at a wedding, when the wine gave out, could change a pail of water into a cask of wine? What human voice could command a school ol fish? Yet here Is a voice that marshals tbe scaly tribes until, in a place where they had let down the net and pulled it up with no fish in it, they let it down again, and the disciples lay hold anil begin to pull, when, by reason of tbe multitude of fisb, the net broke. Nature is Ills servant. The flowers— He twisted tlism into ills sermons; the winds—they were His lullaby, when Ho slept in the boat; tbe vain—it" bung glit teringly on the thick ioliage of the Para blesj the star of Bethlehem—it sang a Christmas carol over Ills birth; the rocks—they heat a dirge at His death. Behold His victory over the grave! The hinges of the family vault become very rusty because they are never opened ex cept to take another In. There is a knob on the outside of tbe door of the sepulchre, but none on tbe inside. Here conies the Conqueror ot Death. Ue enters that realm and says: “Daughter ot Jairus, sit up;” and she sits up. To Lazarus: “Come forth;” and he came lorth. To the wid ow’s son he said: “Get up from that bier;” and he goes borne with his mother. Then Jesus snatched up the keys ot death und hung them ot His gir dle, and cried until ail the graveyards of the earth heard Him: “G Death! I will be thy piague; O Gravel I will be thy destruction!” No man could go through all the obsta cles 1 have described, you say, without having a nature adjoined that was super natural. That arm, amid its muscles, and nerves, and bones were intertwisted the energies oi omnipotence. Lithe syl lables of that voice there was the empha sis of the eternal God. That toot that walked tbe deck of the ship in Ginnesaret shall slamp kingdoms of darkness into demolition. This poverty-struck Christ owned Augustus, owned the Sanhedrim, owned Tiberius, owned all the castles on its beaoh, all tbe skies that looked down into its water; owned all the earth and ali the heavens. To Him of the plain coat belonged robes of celestial royalty. Ho who walked the road to Emniaus—the lightnings wore the fire-shod steeds to His chariot. Yet there are those who look on and see Christ turn water into wine, and they say, sleight of hand. And they see Christ raise the dead to life, and they say, easily explained, not really dead; playing dead. And they see Christ giving siaht to tbe blind man, and they say, Clairvoyant doctor. Obi what shall they do on the day when Christ rises up in judgment, and the hills shall rock, aud tho trumpets shall call, peal on peal. In tho time oi Theodosius the Great there was a great assault made upon the Divinity of Jesus Christ, and during that time Theodosius the Great called his own son to sit on tbe throne with him, and bo a copartner in the government or the em pire; and one day tbe oid Bishop came und bowed down belore Theodosius the Emperor and passed out of the room, and the Emperor was offended, saying to the old Bishop: “Why didn’t you pay the same honor to my sou, who shares with me in the govern ment?” Then the old Bishop turned to the young man and said: “Tho Lord bless thee, my young man,” but still paid him no such honor as be had paid to tfie Emperor. And tfie Emperor was still of leudeduml displeased,when theold Bishop turned to Theodosius the Great aud said to him: “You are offended with me be cause 1 don’t pay the same honor to your son whom you have made copartner in tho government of this empire, tho same honor I pay to you, and yet you encour age multitudes oi people in your realm to deny the Son of God equal authority, equal power, with God the Father.” My subject also reassures us of the faet that in all our struggles w have a sympatuizer. You cannot tell Christ anything now about hardship. I do not think that wide ages of eternity will take tbe scars from his punctured side, and fils lacerated temples, and his sore hundo. You will never have a burden weighing so many pounds as that burden Christ car ried up tfie bloody hill. You will never have any suffering worse tbaa He en dured when with tongue hot and cracked, und inflamed and swollen, He moaned: “I thirst.” You will Dover be surrounded by worse hostility than that which stood arouhd Cbrist's feet, foaming, reviling, livid with rage, howling down tils prayers, and snuffing up tuo smell of blood. Gh! ye faint-hearted, oh! ye troubled, oh! ye persecuted one, here is a heart that can sympathize with you! Again, aud lastly, 1 learn from all that has beeu said this morning, that Christ was awfully In earnest. If it bad not been a momentous mission, Ue would have turned hack from It disgusted and discouraged. He saw you In a captivity from whioh H was resolved to extricate you, though it cost Uim ail sweat, all tears, all blood, lie cams a great way to save you. Hu came from Betbishera here, through tbe place of skulls, through the ohsrnel house, through banishment. There was not, among all tn ■ ranks of ooieslitls. one belug who would do as i much for you. 1 lay His crushed heart at your feet to-day. Let it not be told in Heaven that you de liberately put your foot, on it. While it will lake all the ages or eternity to cele brate Christ's triumph, 1 am hero to make the startling announcement that because of the rejection of this mission on the part of some ol you, all that magnifioent work of garden, and cross, and grave is, so fur as you are concerned, a failure. Helena, the Empress, went to the Holy Land to find the cross of Christ. Getting to tho Holy Land there were three crosses excavated, and the question was whioh of (he three crosses was Christ’s cross. They took a dead body, tradition says, and put it upon one ol thu crosses, and there was no lile; and they took the dead body and put it upon an other cross, and there was no life. But truditionf says when the dead body whs pul up against tbe third cross it sprung Into life. The dead man lived again. Oil, that the life-giviug power of the son of God might dart your dead soul into an eternal life, beginning this dayl “Awake thou that sleepest and rise from the dead, and Christ shall give tbee life 1” PRETTY CABINET LADIES. The Daughter of tho Secretary of flic Interior First. Washington, Got. 23.—Among the “Cabinet rosebuds” who will blossom out into society here this winter, the most at tractive by far is Miss Jennie Lamar, the eighteen-year-old daughter of tbe Secre tary of tue Interior. She is already known in society, since she bus been for a year the Chief social support of her widower lather. She Is a typical South ern beauty. Her form is somewhat tall, lithe and willowv; her movements particularly graceful, and her manner marked by "the peculiar high culture ob servable in blue-blooded Southern la dles. She has an oval face, almost per fect in contour, olive complexion, a pret ty rosebud mouth anu velvety brown eves, which are wonderfully expressive. A t a converser she has tew equals here, wnils in tbe matter of social tact those who have been at her father’s receptions say that she it like h veteran society woman. Kor the flrßt timo since Mr. Lamar came to Washington he has taken a whole house, and proposes to entertain this winter on a scale only below that, of Secretary Whitney. Whether he relies only on his daughter as an assistant or whether he expeots to have a wile at the bead of tbe bouse soon is not known for certain. Anyhow be might well rely on his lovely daughter, for she has all ihe qualifications that go to make up a leader in society. Tbe Secretary is said to be very fond of Miss Jennie. She generally accompanies him on his frequent horseback rides, and he n< ver looks 6o happy as when she is lean ing on his arm. Mr. Lnniar had seen very little of his daughter belore lust win ter. When he was eleoted to the United States Senate he placed her, then a little girl, under the care ol a relative who kept a young ladies’ seminary at Oxford, Miss., and there she remained until fie became a member of President Cleve land’s Cabinet. Engaged iu his duties and dreams, betook little account ol the child at homo, so that when she came here last winter to help her father in his social duties he was immensely surprised at and proud of her dovoloj incut into a lovely young woman. It is probable that the Secretary would never have had a thought o( a second marriage venture, having such a beauti ful daughter, but lor tbe tact tnat he saw she was not destined to remain with him long. From her first appearance here tne young men have beeu classing her among ungels and other supernatural beings, and sho bus bad so many suitors that it can burdly be in her feminine nature to hold out much longer. The Secretary recognizee this fact—hence his turning towards a life partner. M !s Kndieott, daughter ofthe Secretary of War, will figure In society this winter also. She is as different from Miss Lamar as Massachusetts Is different from Mis sissippi. She is a Boston girl to the tips of her lingers. W bile not pretty she has an agreeable figure and a face of mark'd intelligence. Sho ha* blonde hair and sometimes wears glasses. L r bearing is proud, almost disuaintul apparently, and her mariners tbe acme of Boston cul ture. You would likely find many like her on Beacon street, but few anywhere else. Like most of the highly cultured girls of the Hub she is serious, lias au expression of intellectu ality and likes to talk about philosophy. She has written poetry, too —or, at least, verses. One of her poems was printed iu tbe Chicago Current, aud some more, it is said, appeared in the Springfield Republican. Miss Kndieott, with ber calm, proud bearing, will un doubtedly attract attention in society, but it is doubtful if she will be as well liked as pretty Miss Lamar. Secretary Manning’s daughter is another debutante. She resembles a good looking country girl and is the picture of health, with her almost rosy cheeks and sparkling eyes. Hue is little more than a schoolgirl yet, and is us Solly us one in tho chewing gum period. It is not at all certain that she could preside at ber father’s receptions with marked success, but, umirr the training of her pretty young stepmother, she will soon be Imbued with the sooial graces. Mrs. Mauulng seems fond of her stepdaughter. | They are always together in drives and look like a pair of loving sisters. The girl calls Mrs. Manning “Mamma,” although the name sounds rather absurd as applied by her to the voting wifo of the Secretary ol the 'Treasury. Miss Molllo Vilas, daughter of thel’ost master General, will be in what is known ns the “transition period” this season. She is not old enough to become a full fledged debutante, still she will assist at reoeptlous and go through a course ot tramiug, as ll wero, tor next winter, Bhe is. aflsr Miss Lamar, the tireltiest of the “Cabinet rosebuds.” She is a golden haired blonde with a sunshiny face and great big blue eyes of tne kind that retain mo expression of ohildish inno cence long alter tho owner has passed middle age. There is one more debutante, outside of Cabi net circles, who will probably attract more attention than those mentioned above. This is Miss Myra Christmas, giandaughter and one of the heirs of the late Mrs. Myra Clark Uaines, the famous New Grlean* litigant. Miss Christmas will probably bo the possessor of over a million dollars in ber own right by tbe time sbo comes of age, anu, as sue is preity as well as riob, society will open iu aims very wide Indeed to receive her. She has just finished her studies and will, it is said, be brought out this winter by tbe wife of one ot tbe Louisiana Senators.

Commissioners from Japan I.oarnA log t he Details of Money Making. Phii.adki.phia, Oct. 23.—Two dietin' guisbed visitors from the empire of Japan called upon iSupt. Fox at the Mint yester day and remained a considerable length of time. They are Mr. T. Hasogowa, Vic* Commissioner of the Imperial Mint, and' Y. lioga, Assistant Assaysr of the Impe rial Mint at Osaka. They came to this country accredited by the Japanese gov ernment, and visited Washington. The Federal authorities there have accredited them to Supt. Fox, with the recommend ation that be furnish the gentlemen all the facilities possible for the eels lection of tbe intormation tbsy de sire. fiupt. Fox siieiit a greater part ol yesterday in conducting the vis itors about the various departments of the mint, examining each section as they went along. The gentlemen from Japan have already expressed themselves a* being very deeply interested in the affairs of the Philadelphia Mint. They have been examining the machinery and noting the distribution of labor, and were pleased at. the exactness of detail and smoothness of. operation. They seem to be great Inter ested in our system of assay and in the peculiar fineness and quality of our precious metals. It was interred from tbeir remarks that they had a preference for tbe United Stales government system oi coin age over that of any or the other govern ments. Both have given a great deal of time to the study ol coinage systems, and are exceedingly well inform* and upon the subject. It is only a few years slnoe another deputation came to the Philadelphia in. stitutlon to Inspect its workings with the purpose ln view of coangmsr their coin age, which previously had been in bars—• oblong pieces with the stamp of the gov ernin' nt upon each to give them cur rency. The result of the visit was th* abolishment of that system and tbe Intro duction of the round coin similar to ours. It is expected that Messrs. Hasegowa and Kocu will remain in the city a num ber of days ho us us to get a 00, replete and comprehensive knowledge ot the whole Institution in Us internal economy and detail. A phenomenal rainfall. The Ktranjjc Freaks of Two Norths Carolina Trees. From the Charleston Fetus and CPU’ter, Kaleiuii, N. C., Oct. 23.—Many oa. nards have doubtless originated in North; Carolina, But the truthful story ot the phenomenon at,Charlotte makes them but poor stories. A great sensation prevails at Charlotte, and Is caused by a pair of trees, in the vicinity of which regularly each dav at 3 o’clock a shower of rain falls. Tbe phenomenon was yesterday witnessed By hundreds of citizens, before whose gaze "the rain fell for two hours. At 3 o’clock to-day an immense crowd bad assembled awaiting the recurrence of the phenomenon. The skies were pbr fecth clear, the sun shining brightly, and the ground In tbe vicinity was dry and dusty, owing to tbe long drought. Two scrubby oak trees stand in a yard at th* corner of Ninth and D streets. Therein nothing unusual about tho appearance of the trees, save that they are not very well tilled with leaves. Atno’olock the expec tant multitude was rewarded by the ap pearance of rain. It began coming down between tho trees in a kind ot mist, whiob gradually increased until It was a gentle But genuine rainfall. Though the rain wis failing before the eyesot all present, no or* could tell from whcuce it came. It oonld be seen coming down from a point above tbe tops of the trees, and continued to fall until 6 o’clock, and that was all that could be realized. Every individual present could see it plaluly. An um brella held up under the falling water was quickly dripping wet. Some of the water was gathered in a water proof garment und was found to he ioy cold. Among those present was Mr. James A. Burry, the sergeant ln charge of the signal station, who was so impressed with wbat he witnessed that he reported the oeourrsnoe to Washington. Tb*. ground covered by the rainfall It about ten lect square. T his wonderful occur rence bus been going on daily for four weeks past, as the residents ot the violin tv testify. While the rain was falling yesterday persons climbed up the trees to make investigations. Tbe leaves and twigs were porieotly dry, and while thev wore lu the top of the trees they could sew (he rain coming down from übovn thsm. No person even attempts to explain th* phenomenon. A Vienna writing master has written forty French words on a grain of wheat that ar •Aid to lie easily legible for good syss. It has boro placed In a gnaw case and presented i* the french Academy of Sciences.
